West Ham United are once again being linked with a move for Ghanaian international Stephen Appiah.
The 28-year-old midfielder, currently out of contract was strongly linked with a move to the Hammers at the end of last year but the move failed to materialise.
Since then he spent a month on trial at Tottenham and was also linked with a move to Russia but has since returned to his base in Italy.
However speaking on his personal website, Appiah admitted that he was looking at a couple of fresh offers - one of which is rumoured to be from the Hammers.
"I feel good and I am very well," he said in a message on his personal website. "I went to England as everyone knows and trained with Tottenham. I was supposed to be there for a week but it got extended for various reasons. Then I had another offer from the Russian champions but that did not materialise.
"I can definitely say that it wasnít about my wage demands and both clubs will confirm that. I wasn't demanding what has been stated in some quarters of the media. My fitness levels were good given that I have been injured and out of the game for over 18 months - however those deals with Tottenham and Rubin didnít materialise and I have to move on.
"There are a couple of offers I received which I didnít consider - so I will be exploring them in the coming weeks."
Hammers boss Gianfranco Zola has lost both Jack Collison and Valon Behrami to injury recently, whilst doubts remain over the long-term fitness of Kieron Dyer who could return to the squad for tonight's clash with West Bromwich Albion.
